ok i'm still a newbie at this so i need help from those that are experienced...
had a baby 7.5 months ago. gained 70 lbs. for the last 7.5 weeks i've been here religiously watching my calories (no more than 1200 for the first 5 weeks until someone pointed out that i'm not eating enough cals then i increased to 1800 plus exercise cals). i've increased my exercise, joined curves about 2 weeks ago, work out there at least 4 times a week, plus yoga at home, walking dogs & baby everyday and normal everyday activity.
i have not lost ANYTHING!!!
i know it's only been two weeks since i increased cals and upped my exercise but i hear of people losing "water weight" or whatever for the first few weeks. shouldn't i have at least lost water??? omfg even if i just saw the scale move a half a pound i think i'd keel over and die of happiness. why is this taking so long for me? i feel like i'm doing this for nothing and working so hard for nothing. what can i do to "kick start" my metabolism? should i do some sort of fast or something just until i start to lose?
